    Try leaving wordpad open with some changes and see if it prompts you to save them when you try to shut down?

    Hmm well you could use a macro utility to do that if you wanted to, it's not so trivial to write a program that does that with any sort of reliability though.

    Hmm well i had a look at the source code and it is asking applications to shut down gracefully (i'm not specifying EWX_FORCE or anything)... It shouldn't cause a problem unless the application you're...

    Hmm yeah i might have set the force flag when calling ExitWindowsEx() which could cause a problem. I'll take a look at it when i can but i'm a bit busy at the moment.. ^^

    Yup yup, that shutdown command should work too, but this app's just a workaround so you can still press your ACPI power button and have your system shut down like it used to before switching to...

    What motherboard are you using? Most modern boards support standby.. might need to turn on S1 or S3 power saving modes in your bios.

    Yeah PICAXE is good for small things like this, fast and easy to develop and they're quite robust. They also don't need a special programmer.

    The only problem I can see is that you'll need to...

    Sampling a soundcard's output and playing it back later will degrade the quality quite a lot. It'd be better to hack whatever's doing the music decoding and write about half a minute's worth of audio...

    It really annoys me that Sony didn't choose a controller IC that accepts SVideo input... Otherwise you could just use the SVideo signal from your video card and get a good enough image... *sigh

    If you run a 4 ohm speaker in a 6 ohm output, you run the risk that you'll overload the amp: reducing the impedance of the speaker means more current will be driven to it. As most transistors used in...

    You normally drive a relay with a microcontroller using a transistor: just a simple BJT, a darlington pair or a power mosfet (it depends how much current your relay draws). Here's an example circuit:...
